    Forgive me if this issue has been discussed elsewhere but I could not find it.

    Tonight my THR22-100 has been rebooting over and over again and never makes it to the menu screen. It will get to the "Just a little while longer" or whatever it says with the Tivo logo and then just restarts.

    I have tried the red button reset, unplugged it and plugged back in reset, and reauthorized the receiver.

    I ran through all the guided diagnostics and everything seems in order, no issues were detected.

    I am now running a 3252 - SMART Long Test on the hard drive but it takes 90 minutes or so and there is also a surface test that I will run after that. It passed the SMART Short Test without issue.

    Anyone else run into this and resolved it.

    I don't know if this is related, but I have also had issues with the buffer recently where it is not keeping any buffer and then will lock up the show if I try to rewind. I would have to go into the menu and back out to continue watching live tv.

    Thanks for any who can help or point me in the right direction.

    For the rebooting problem, I have no idea. If all diagnostics fail to fix the problem have Directv send you another one.

    As to the buffering issue, it has been discussed here before to no avail :( -

    Restarting the receiver fixes the buffers for a while. Then it happens again. Rinse, repeat, etc.
